Latest Quick Way To Know Your 9mobile PIN

9mobile utilizes several different PINs for security and service features. Here’s how to find or manage the specific PIN you need:

Types of 9mobile PINs

  • SIM Card PIN: This is the basic PIN that protects your SIM card from unauthorized use. It’s typically set to 0000 by default.
  • Data Transfer PIN: This PIN is used for authorizing data gifting to other 9mobile numbers. The default is usually 0000.
  • Recharge PIN: It’s not strictly a PIN you’d ‘know,’ but rather, recharge vouchers or e-top-ups usually have a 15 or 16-digit PIN that you use to load airtime.

How to Find/Change Your PINs:

  1. SIM Card PIN:
    • Your phone’s security settings usually have a section to change your SIM PIN (location varies between phone models).
    • Important: If you don’t know your old PIN, don’t guess multiple times – this can block your SIM. You’ll need your PUK (PIN Unblocking Key), usually found on your SIM card’s packaging or available from 9mobile customer service.
  2. Data Transfer PIN:
    • Dial *200# then select option 3 (“Data”) followed by option 2 (“Change PIN”).
  3. Recharge PIN:
    • This PIN is printed on physical recharge cards or provided in your e-top-up receipt.


  • Change Default PINs: It’s highly recommended to change default PINs to something unique that’s harder to guess.
  • Memorize Your PINs: Choose PINs you can remember, but avoid easy-to-guess combinations like birthdates.
  • PUK Code: If you block your SIM card, you’ll need your PUK to unblock it. Keep this code in a safe place.


Knowing which type of 9mobile PIN you need helps you find it or change it as required. Prioritize changing default PINs for enhanced security.
